Paul and Mary: Two Case Histories from Truants From Life
Paul and Mary Two Case Histories from Truants From Life Author:Bruno Bettelheim Dr. Bettelheim is head of the Univ. of Chicago's Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School, which has pioneered in the rehab of seriously disturbed children. The two case histories presented here, taken from his book, Truants from Life, show the school's philosophy in action. They describe in chronological detail the treatment that restored two apparen... more »tly "hopeless" children to normal life w/o the use of drugs, surgery, or restraints; the setbacks and successes encountered along the way; and the lessons that the school staff as well as the children learned in the process. . .
